Key 3 miss training & fans’ ‘proof’ why Salah must get new deal – Liverpool FC Roundup

Liverpool have a couple of rest and recovery days after our Champions League exertions, but quickly the focus is turning to the weekend and another must-win game for the Reds.


King Kenny back in the dugout as the legends face Barcelona

Barcelona must be sick of Liverpool, hey? Not just the Origi semi. Not even just the Gary Mac penalty. But even walloping them at Wembley in the friendly, Riise and Bellamy in the Camp Nou, fleecing them for Phil when they didn’t know how to use him…fun times.

Anyway, they’re back for more, coming to Anfield on 26 March for a Legends game which will see Kenny Dalglish step up to manage the Reds.

Maxi Rodriguez, Daniel Agger, Jose Enrique, Patrik Berger, Luis Garcia, Dirk Kuyt and Steve McManaman are confirmed to be playing their part, as too Jason McAteer, Jerzy Dudek, Bjorn Tore Kvarme, Vladimir Smicer and Phil Babb.

Javier Saviola and Edmilson are to be involved for Barcelona on a day that aims to raise valuable funds for the LFC Foundation, Barca Foundation, Forever Reds and the Owen McVeigh Foundation.

John Barnes will be Kenny’s assistant!

  • Robert Lewandowski is on Man United‘s wishlist for summer – sure he’ll be keen to swap hero status and regular titles to watching Diogo Dalot overhit crosses in the Europa League
  • Kalvin Phillips will be Aston Villa‘s top target if Leeds are relegated, which is a nice mostly-avoidable rumour given they are still fairly unlikely to go down
